Manicure

Hey well today i went to the mall and got a manicure! And while the lady was doing it she said, "do you want a design?" and i said "How much are they?" and she said "I will do it for FREE!" and i said heck yes i do. And i said what should i do and she suggested a snowflake. So well i had her do it. Here is my snowflake and then my whole hand with a manicure. LOVE IT! I mostly got it for Illinois but i didn't want to wait another week, so i got it today. Yay! (:

The Boston Tea Party

So i have been learning about the Boston Tea Party in history. And oddly enough i LOVE it! I actually think that the Boston Tea Party is my favorite piece of history. It's quite interesting as well as helpful. I actually have a test on it tomorrow and for any questions asking about it i will know them because i want to learn more and more about this great piece of history. It's amazing knowing what the people did. I just wish i could have been alive back then to do it with the patriots. I usually just write down what she puts on the projector and take notes. and then just study from those later but the Boston Tea Party i listened to and asked questions and paid attention. I love this history. What's your favorite piece of history? (:

Blankets and blankets!

I love blankets! The way you can cuddle with them and stay warm and have them be big, small, fuzzy, warm, and cold! All of the above deffinatly! I want my own stash for the winter and for the rest of the winters/ or summers! I am so cold during the winter and sometimes the summer too! So i would like to have many blankets in my closet just to keep warm and live off of. (: Halloween and autumn season! Woo! Go soup and jeans and LEAVES!!!

Cameras...

Well i have been wanting a digital camera for quite some time, well mostly a decent one. My old pink one was quite cheap, and well at the time i think i was quite anxious to at least get something that could do any pictures at all! But now i have relized that it is quite crummy.. Basically the only thing it is good for is downloading pictures from other memory cards. Also it doesnt have a flash..quite dark and blurry pictures at that. But now i want a new one that can last me a while and takes good pictures as well as in the dark. I preferably want a skinny camera, if so red. I dont quite mind the color as much as the quality. But i just saw this one. I like the color and i love how it is skinny. But it looks like it doesnt have very many controls on the back. So i would like a better one. I think that if i save my money for about 5 months MAYBE i could get the cord to download the pictures with. Life is difficult! Or am i just making it that way? (:

Horseback riding for 7 HOURS!!

Alright so for mutual last night we went horseback riding up by island park so about an hour away from where i am. Well i didnt want to go because i thought that it was going to be boring because we were just supposed to walk on the horses trail and not actually riding. Also we were gonna be gone for so long! But my mom made me. So we went up there. --It was an alright driving experience but kinda boring.-- so they put me on a horse. Alright this is cool. We get out of the stable or whatever you call the place where horses are. We start going down a path. Well if my horse and i fell behind he would TROT!!! im so sore! But anyway. Well he kept going all over the place. He was trying to pass everyone. Then when we were going through this little pond thing he would stop and drink! I kicked him and pulled on him and everything! Gosh this horse is stubborn. So then he started neighing and we finaly got through. But at random moments it would just stop! And i would kick and kick! but on the wayy back i switched with someone who wanted to trot. Well it was better. I dont think i will ride a horse for a while! (:

A little bit of everything!

*Alright, First i would like to say that Jenny Green's Sante Fe' Chicken Sandwhiches were GREAT, GREAT, GREAT, GREAT,GREAT! Fantastic job! I loved them so much...I had the chicken with some bread and butter. Mmm Mmm GOOD!! They weren't very spicy. They were perfect! I think that they are my favorite food now. (: Thanks Jenny again!!

School has started a couple weeks back and i still am not used to it! I dont really like it all that much. I also dont like getting up early. I love love love sleeping in and wish i could do it alot more often. I get so much homework from ONE class. I think that she's a crazy lady! But she's really nice.

My relatives are in town right now and are staying with us for one more day. They were here about on Monday. It has been lots of fun having them here. Although school is in the way so i dont really get to see them until AFTER school. Good luck with school Analisa! *have a happy first day! :]* My aunt Peggy, my uncle Lee, my cousin Collin, and my wonderful cousin Analisa! It's been great seeing you guys! I will be sad when you leave, and I will miss you guys! (: Although the bright side is that Analisa is going to college up here so we can see her more. Exciting!!
Halloween is coming up and i dont know what to do!! Ahh! I need some ideas. Comment some ideas or email them to me! It would be much appreciated. Also, I cant wait to go to Illinois in December!! I cant wait to see you Erin and family! It'll be great to see how big the kids have grown.

My favorite month and season (:

I have put a lot of thought into this and i think that October is possibly my favorite month! It's very much fun and lots of memories into it. I just love how Conference is at the beginning --which also in this October i get my dream of going to the conference center! I am way excited to go!-- and also i love how everything is kinda a "spooky" if that's how you would put it. Uhh i love how everyone get's dressed up for halloween and all the fun parties. I love October all around! It's just a warm and fun month to be in. My favorite season is Autumn because i love how's its the perfect temperature. It's also soup and bread season. --soup isnt my absolute favorite but i will eat it. I love chilli so much!-- It's jeans and jean jacket season. Leaves are the best. I love love love going to utah in Autumn. I love it just because it's just great all around. I love how sometimes it's windy and rainy and how the electricity goes out. And even though sometimes i dont like it but i do like going to go pick potatoes with my family in the fields. It's cool --coldish-- and it's a fun experience that im grateful for! I love it! Autumn is definatly the best! Dont get me wrong winter, summer and spring are great to but there's just something about Autumn that makes it special to me. And most important it's coming up! (:

week-end with jessica! ^_^

So i went to Jessica's house about a week ago. And i stayed for a few days! It was awsome. We had lots of fun. We arrived in utah and we went to the outlets --also my mother and carly were there-- and we got lots of stuff. And then we went to Wyoming...haha but just for about 5 minutes! And then the next day we --carly my mom and me-- went to the "Accessory Shop" and i got a lot of jewelry. And then we just hung out for a few more days and it was a blast! I cant wait to do it again. ^_^

Where'd ya go?

Well, i have been thinking about my broken ankle..and i figured that it is a blessing in a way. It might sound crazy but it's true..I thought it was a nightmare at first but now...well. I relized that it was helping me through this summer relize that if i didnt get it i would still do what i do now! --eat junk food, stay lazy, and do absolutely nothing.-- If i didnt get it then i would still do that with two working ankles..But since it did happen i am going to go be active alot more!!! I will cherish my ankle. Haha just kidding. but i will make sure that i appreciate it. Also my summer has been a big blob! B-O-R-I-N-G! I have only two weeks left without my cast...i have to spend it wisely. One week of it i will be with jessica!! But with the other i week i dont know. Any ideas?

***CAST UPDATE***
I GET IT OFF TODAY!!!!!! YAY! [[:

~cake decorating~

Alright so im not really that good at doing cakes at all. I always get the cakes broken and bleh...But i went to mutual last night and we learned about cake decorating, and we did fondant on our cakes. Although it was already made. i learned how to make roses from fondant, and so then i decided maybe i would make a cake today. So i made the marshmallow fondant --sticky icky and bleh-- my hands are so gross from it. But last night when i did the fondant i had a chocolate cake and white fondant on it and then a white rose on top with a pink icing around the cake. (pictures to come) when i made it this morning the cakes turned out alright until i got the bigger one out of the pan.

It had ripped and was all weird shaped. So i had a little-er one and so i tried with that.. By the way the fondant did turn out *fabulous* by the end.. So i got it into shape and splatted it on the cake! i missed by at least an inch. So i cut it to make it even and the frosting that i frosted it --there was WAYY to much-- and it blurted out of the bottom. Dang! Well here are pictures of me kneading the fondant and the cakes. I would post how the cake turned out except that im embarrassed! [: well better luck next time!

Since i am starting a big fat recipe book--as i said before--i would like people to not give me recipes in comments, if you have a great recipe that you love! than send it to my email. i would appreciate it very much. But i would like to say that i have tried many different interesting recipes i have heard from different places and they are very good. :]] i cant wait to try them all. On jenny greens blog she has told ways to save money (although im not really on my own yet i have great ideas for when im married or even for college Thanks Jenny! (: ) Even if she doesnt relize that she is helping me i do sincerely appreciate it so much! As i was saying she gives tips on what she does to save money on food and such she has some awsome recipes. She has tortillas and granola bars, as well as some sante fe' chicken sandwiches. I have tried the torillas and they are quite delicious! And i tried the granola bars and they taste almost exactly like cookies. Both of them are sooo good. the sante fe' chicken sandwiches i have not yet tried, but i hope to try soon. You guys might not relize but once you put down a little recipe name i quickly look it up on google to find the recipe and stick it in my FIRST recipe book. It has gotten quite large. Most of the blogs and people i communicate on here with are great influences on me and i look up to you guys. I want to be just like you guys because you have chosen the right and done amazing stuff and still been rightous! i so much appreciate it! Thankyou all. :]]

Silly and sad story at the same time!

Alright so I was at girls camp and well they have a LARGE slide...and it is amazingly fast and tall! It is just so amazing and i love it. But i was at camp and my friend wendy (she is going to be a senior this year so she is older so i am smaller than her not that she is fat of course!) asked if i wanted to go get a tissue with her so i said yes! And earlier that day me her and brianna had decided that we wanted to go down that slide at like 10 o'clock at night...but once we got the tissue i said "Hey! How bout we go down the slide now and then later to!" (brianna was not with us though.) She said "Sure!" so we headed over there and i told her that going backwards was so amazing! (what you do is someone is facing forward and you link arms with the person behind you because they are gonna go backwards so you are back to back..) She said no im scared and i was like its nothing! It is so fun and you will love it..after a couple of minutes of persuading i got her to do it..We headed down and she screamed. Well we were going WAY to fast! so i tried to stop but i couldnt stop both of us. (this is all my fault and not hers by the way) So when we were almost at the very bottom we flew off and my foot had flown forward in the position kinda like torwards my knee but you know what i mean. and we had both landed on it! OUCH!! i obviously could not move at all...so Wendy checked after about 1 minute once we got down and my foot was already like swollen like a balloon and it was HUGE! So Wendy (the stronge girl she is, but like i said she isnt fat so she is small) had to carry me up 2 flights of stairs and carried me back to camp...it was even bigger!! i had to leave a couple days early. :( They thought it was just a sprain because it wasnt really bruised. But i went and got x-rays yesterday and well i apparently broke my ankle really badly! And i might have to get surgery. Or get a cast. But it is very sevier. Oh well..Hmmm? But im on crutches for basically the rest of the summer! I cant do anything.. ):

I love these places! They are so pretty! I love how the waterfall is black and white and just so beautiful and peaceful! I love the sealing room because the mirrors bump the chandeler back and forth so its like eternity! And i love the sky one because you can like see forever from the mountain side! So pretty! Love it love it love!! <3comment>

Different assorted things! :]]

Well, Everyone has been asking me "Are you going anywhere fun for summer?" and i always say the same thing "Umm No but uhh we are going to Illinois for christmas!" And what do they say oh cool..And then change the subject. I dont see why i have to go anywhere to have fun. Although i am way excited for winter especially to see Daniel, Erin and the crew! I also get to see all my old friends and all that fun stuff! I think i will go to the mall and see what's going with their mall! Yay! This christmas is going to be lots of fun!

So every year for school i never have any money for school clothes so i usually get like 1 or 2 shirts from the store that my mom pays for. Well i have decided that i am going to save up and then spend it all at the same time! This summer has been very slow! I wish it would go straight to August so i could start school again! That would save alot of my time and it would be alot funner!

So I dont know if any of you know (all 3 of you) but i Love cooking! I think it is very enjoyable and just lots of fun! well i have started a cook book and i would like lots of recipes that are delicious! if any of you have any recipes please give me the recipe! I would appreciate
it much!

Yes so i just watched the new moon trailor and i really want to go see it even though it is a bit cheesy kinda. :) but i do still want to go and it's kinda sad because i think i am falling for jacob more than edward now!

Lazy bum

Okay, so i really feel like this summer i am going to be the biggest bum in the world. All i do is sleep, eat and watch movies. That is not a good way to spend a summer even though i do it every year and it seems to be working. Although i would like to spend my summer a little bit more productive. i dont want to be a lazy bum anymore so that is why i have been thinking about doing sports...lots of them and getting more active. I didnt know someone could be so out of shape like me. I didnt know it was possible but since i have done it then i know it must be true. Darn! This is terrible. mmmmmm Scrambled eggs sound so good right now! Toodles!

what backround?

Ok so i want to keep changing my backround because they are all so darn cute! I can't make up my mind, i could be changing my backround so often you wont even notice because you will be so used to me changing it...i like to look at other peoples backround because they are all just so adorable! :] i like pink and brown because they are really cute bright colors! and i have this obsession for bees now! they are so cute even if they do hurt and are scary...but polka dots are wayy cute to! oh darn it! this is very hard!

Tuesday, April 28, 2009

bees

As you may see i have a bee backround...well, for some weird reason i now have this strange obsession for bees! i love them! Maybe not the real live ones but of course the cartoon ones and maybe pictures of little ones! but i think they are cute! Probably not hornets because i think those bees are crazy scary! yikes!! :]]

school's almost done/why not?

Yay! School is almost done and im way excited about it...im a little scared that i will have terrible grades by the end of the year! let's hope not!

I have never wanted rain so badly in my entire life! i haven't seen or been in rain in a long time! i think that when my sister jessica comes up for the summer we are gonna go shopping and im gonna get a purple rain jacket and a purple umbrella! maybe then rain will finally come! yeah! Or there is always the possibility to move to the rainiest place in the us! does anyone know where that is?

I want to grow up fast!

I'm trying to look so grownup with my leggings,
shorts, fuzzy slippers, big hoops, and bonneville t-shirt...
but im not quite sure it's working out so great.

I know i kinda look like im to tall for the ceiling but I
did this picture on a self timer on my desk and it was hard to
get it just right because it was running low on bateries.



So i know im only 13 (14 in december) but i really want to be like 18 right now! I want to go to college and get married and have kids and have my own house! Because honestly i'm really excited to clean up my house perfectly and make dinner and make breakfast for my husband...Jessica of course has also made me want this...and then of course there are those way cute chick flicks. But people have told me that i should want to be my age because it is going to go way faster than i think it will. I want to have fun in college-like go out to eat with all my girlfriends! And go shopping, and just have so much fun, and then get married at the temple. What i really want to do is when im like 22 and i have my first little child and my husband I really want to go camping with my WHOLE family (that means everyone including jacob, tyler, and daniels family) at Lava Hot Springs. But i dont think that will happen for a while. :( but lets hope it happens sometime!

david archuleta concert

Ok so i know this was about a week ago but i went to a david archuleta concert! it was so much fun! i love it! he is so amazing and adorable! me and my best of friends went up to pocatello and went to his concert in this big building...on the way up, we listened to music very loudly. we almost lost our voices completely because we were either screaming "WOO!" or "I LOVE YOU!". it was quite funny...when he said how are all of you doing he pointed to me and my friends and said i can see you girls! it was amazing. he sings so well in person. when the show was done he didnt come out to sign sadly :( even though we did bribe his band to try to get him out there just to sign our shirts they said no. we didnt get his autograph but we did get to see him and have him see us. we got to spend lots of time together! and then when we were driving away we almost drove into a big ditch because it was so dark...we stopped and got a dozen crispy creams and fell asleep on the wayy home..i was quite pleased with the trip! i hope i can do it again sometime soon... gotta go toodles! ~

new blogger/one of a kind

I always knew that everyone was different, but i have figured out that i am one of a kind...i have never met anyone so much like me because i am so different. Even my friends have said that i am one of a kind (in a good way). You will find that i am one of the craziest/silliest girls you could ever meet. My sister always says that she has never met anyone that likes just pepperoni on a subway sandwhich...instead of a hot 'n' spicy (salami and pepperoni) with olives, mustard, salt and pepper, and pickles. She says that it is the weirdest combination. Also instead of seperating my food from different types i just put it all on top of each other and eat it all because it's all gonna go the same place. If im almost asleep and im dead beat and i remember that my clothes arent hung up i turn on the light and hang them up. I dont like milk on cereal usually. And i like to look good for bed...like i will layer things so that i look cute when i go to bed. I'm the plum on the apricot tree. :s


I now have started a blog because all of my family has inspired me to do so...especially my sister! She seems like she has alot of fun. It's also because my sister is so amazing and does so well on her blog and makes it so interesting...i thought maybe i should try! :)
